PIES group book launch 2018
Launch of Mozaik Kajian Islam di Indonesia 29 August 2018
Mozaik Kajian Islam di Indonesia, the edited book produced by the 2016 PIES participants, was launched on 29 August 2018. The Deputy Head of Mission, Allaster Cox, and the Director of Islamic Literature from the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Professor Muhammad Zain, launched the book at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta. Seventy people attended the function, including 27 PIES alumni. The book, with its striking cover from a photograph by Iksan Kamil Sari, has been very well received. We’d like to thank all the authors for their efforts, and a special thanks goes to Syahbudi Rahim, who was chief editor and liaised with the publisher, PT Pustaka Alvabet.
The authors belonged to the final group of the PIES III cohort. They are (from left to right in the photo above):
